For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email - I'm often waiting on feedback from our hiring managers. Once I hear from them, I can come back to the email and let our candidate know! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Enthusiasm! Candidates that have researched the position and our company always stand out. It's refreshing to speak with people who are excited (and sound excited) about seeing if Extra Space is a great fit for them. Personally, I'm thrilled when people interview like normal human beings instead of robots trying to hit every buzzword in the book. Passionate. Driven. KPI's. Motivated. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Resume. We appreciate it when people apply online since we'll have to get their information in our system anyways. Cover letters are nice, but only if written like a real person. No one understands what your skills are when you attempt the following phrase (or those like it): A motivated, passionate, conscientious, problem solving, hard working team player. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: A sloppy resume filled with spelling errors or applying for EVERY job on our careers page (200+ jobs). We've seen a few people apply to everything from our Sr. Director roles to our hourly positions. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What do you like to do in your free time? Soccer, longboarding, hiking, mountain biking, anything adventurous and a bit dangerous. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? We've been growing like crazy and I've learned quite a lot. Not respecting limits has been one of those lessons. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Waffle Wednesdays, food truck events, baseball games and company outings to the zoo are all events we've had in the past few months. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Everyone is pretty relaxed and they're always willing to help out if you have questions.

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully. After spending many years in corporate HR, I flipped to the other side and became a career therapist. So, I've seen both sides of this situation in the workplace. In this video, I discuss why people struggle to deal with bullies and what you can do to change the situation instantly.

This week, I did something that truly scared me. I sent an email to over 120,000 Work It Daily newsletter subscribers and asked them to answer the question, "What do we do?"

A market correction is going to happen. When it does, layoffs will follow. I've been in the HR and recruiting industry for over two decades and have seen three recessions of varying sizes. In the video above, I explain how to tell when a recession is coming and what that means to you and your career. While many people will skip watching this. Or, will watch it and do nothing. I hope YOU are the smart, savvy professional who sees how important it is to prepare for unexpected, unwelcomed career circumstances.
